Passion finds energy
Would you be talking about your products and services if you weren’t getting paid?
When the heart isn’t in something, we feel a loss of energy, drive and motivation to act or use resources. If your business is to sustain you financially and secure your lifestyle, then your products and services must be something you’re passion about. Even if the argument is that you have staff running parts of the business, how motivated are they?
Are these things you’re promoting, things you’d be promoting even if you didn’t get paid? Is it something related to a problem that makes you angry and something you want to fix? Also be aware that if you’ve been in business a while, sometimes a dip in energy or “losing heart” is a sign that the way you’ve been “presenting” your product needs a shake up.
Honour the signs and be willing to be open to a fresh approach. You can present your products and services in a myriad of differing ways, creativity is endless; if you still have passion then it’s open for avenues of income to flow!
Inspiration, is a mis-used. Inspiration means “moved to action”. That tends to happen when we’re not trying to push something and it always feels good. Pushing, squeezing, worrying, getting irritable, angry, frustrated, are all emotions that slam the breaks on because it causes a resistant dynamic. It’s like trying to push two magnets facing north together. You will experience ease in your business when you take the path of least resistance.
So bear this in mind when you’re thinking about your products and services, or something you are trying to make happen. You can find inspiration in places that have nothing to do with your business. Find subjects, people, ideas, tasks that make you feel good.
